The dictionary is multilingual Arabic, English, French and Spanish. Chinese is coming !

It is available in several formats, including CD-ROM, printed book and e-book. For details please contact Dr Kassem Sara at

There is also an online version on the web.

    Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve visited this web site before but after browsing
    through some of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found
    it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!
